CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Inside Menard's and stores across the country, they are getting ready for you.

One way in, fences to make sure no one cuts in line, maps to help you navigate the store, those are just a few things taking place to sure you get the deals and you have a good time doing it.

Brett Griffin, Menard's general manager, said this isn't his first Black Friday rodeo. He's been doing this for 12 years and each year you never really know what to expect.

Griffin said they probably had about a few dozen more trucks than they normally do and have a full staff ready to go. He says it's all about being organized leading up to the big day.

"I know when I got here at 4:30 in the morning last year, there was a line wrapped around the store," Griffin said. "It's kind of a neat little atmosphere when you get here to open up the store and everything."

Griffin said he hopes even more folks come out on Black Friday than last year.
